Team Cinelli-Chrome takes the whole podium in FallesCrit La Vall d’Uixo

Team Cinelli-Chrome showed that they mean business for 2017 as the team dominated the FallesCrit La Vall d’Uixo men’s pro race in Spain by filling the whole podium. Two members of the team,  Ignazio Moser and Davide Vigano, successfully set up a break-away. Ignazio took the win and Davide settled for a second place. Paolo Bravini made sure that the whole podium was taken by Team Cinelli-Chrome by winning the bunch sprint.

The women’s category was won by Margaux Vigie from SantaFixie BlB Team, Carla Nafria who crashed out of the Last Man Standing last week got 2nd, and Marina Cerezo Fortuna from Uquipo Bolivia Femenino got third.

In the men’s amateur category it was Fran Parra taking the highest spot on the podium followed by Lan Vigneux and Jorge Cute.

“The initial plan was to attack around the 5th or 6th lap.” Said Team Cinelli-Chrome Manager Enrico Biganzoli. ” Davide Viganò was really encouraged by his qualifying time but I assured him that any attacks needed to be assisted by the more experienced fixed crit riders otherwise there was risk of getting into trouble.” During the third lap there was a fall that created a gap between Davide and Ignazio and the rest of the group. The 2 Italians attacked and were alone for the rest of the race while the remaining Team Cinelli Chrome riders spent their time fending off would be attacks from the chase group.

“As the race was coming to a close we found ourselves bunched up in the chase group and I urged Paolo to attack, at that moment I envisioned an all yellow podium, and that’s what we got!” Said Biganzoli after the victory.

Sometimes last minute changes are the best and this weekend at @criteriumlavallduixo has been amazing. Thanks for everything @richardromeroa 👏🏼 I'm so happy with the feelings I got at the qualifying, doing the best time, having the prize for the fifth lap and finishing it on second place. I still have a lot to learn in sprint tactics but that's practice and the feelings were there!! Congrats to @gomarrun for the first place!💪🏼 What I have really liked of this weekend is have friends who join me to this last minute plan! 👌🏼I've had a blast @quiquebuenocc Thank you!😘 And yes Of course I had problems opening the cava bottle haha😪😂 . A veces los cambios de última hora son los que más molan. Y éste fin de semana en El @criteriumlavallduixo ha sido increíble. Gracias por todo @richardromeroa 👏🏼 Muy contenta con las sensaciones que tuve en la clasificatoria, haciendo el mejor tiempo y en la carrera llevándome el premio en la quinta vuelta y terminando la carrera en un segundo puesto, todavía me queda mucho por aprender en tácticas de sprint a meta pero las sensaciones ahí estuvieron!! Enhorabuena por el primer puesto @gomarrun 💪🏼 Peeeero lo que más ha molado del finde es tener amigos que se apuntan a cualquier plan, a última hora. 👌🏼Lo he pasado pipa @quiquebuenocc ¡¡Gracias!!😘 Y si, por supuesto, tuve problemas abriendo la botellita de cava😪😂 . . .
